Woodrum WMA (1,700 acres) Jackson County. Located on the Middle Fork of the Pocatalico River, Woodrum WMA can be reached from I-77 either by state Route 42 at Romance or by state Route 19 at Kentuck. The area’s hilly terrain is comprised mostly of oak-hickory and oak-pine timber interspersed with abandoned farms. Hunting opportunities exist for deer, turkey, squirrel, grouse, rabbit and waterfowl. Woodrum Lake, a 240-acre impoundment, offers good fishing for largemouth and spotted bass, bluegill, crappie and muskellunge. A concrete boat ramp is located at the upper end of the lake. Motors are restricted to 10 horsepower or less. Camping is not permitted. Owned by WVDNR.
